I can’t believe it is Thanksgiving already! Where has the time gone? As I am gearing up for the holiday, I have been reflecting on what I am thankful for. I would like to say that I am so grateful to the students I have in all of my classes. They are such a caring and hardworking bunch. Kudos to you, parents, for shaping them to be such fine young men and women! I am also thankful for the time I get to spend with my family. Between sports and jobs, we are all so busy we hardly get to see each other. I am looking forward to having ample time catching up and having fun with everyone. I wish all of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
This is a reminder that parent teacher conferences begin tomorrow. Please feel free to contact me or the office if you need to check your conference date and time. The Scholastic Book Fair is also going to be held in the library during conference time. It is a great way to encourage your child to read and to maybe begin a little Christmas shopping. The students may also bring money to purchase books during the school day next week. I am looking forward to meeting with you!
This week in Language Arts, the students are practicing the comprehension strategy, author’s purpose.
